The Best Mattress for Couples

Relationships are all about compromise. But when it comes to shopping for a mattress for you and your partner, you don’t have to compromise a thing.

Chances are, you and your partner have different sleeping preferences, and many common mattress brands aren’t designed with the sleep needs of two different people in mind. Who hasn’t fought over temperature preferences? Luckily, there are products that can eliminate some of these petty fights and morning moodiness.

A lack of sleep can actually hurt your relationship, so it’s crucial that you and your partner find a mattress suited for both of your sleep needs. Luckily, Eight provides three mattress options great for couples. But what exactly makes the Eight the best smart bed for couples?

The major components that make a mattress perfect for couples are:


Minimal or no motion transfer

If one or both of you tosses and turns during that night, it can have a negative impact on your partner’s sleep. To avoid disturbing their sleep (and potential grumpiness), a bed with low motion transfer is important.


Ability to sleep at different temperatures

While no mattress can save you fights over who hogs the blankets at night,  beds with dual zone temperature capabilities like Eight smart mattresses can prevent those arguments over temperature preferences.  If one of you prefers to sleep cool while the other enjoys the cozy warmth of a bed, just adjust the temperature on each side of the bed to suit your preferences. You can even set individual temperatures to automatically turn on and off at certain times every day and night.


Firmness that fits that needs of both people

Options are so important when it comes to finding the right mattress, but much like moving in with your partner, they can be overwhelming. Any good mattress brand should allow you to eliminate the low quality options.   With a trusted brand like Eight Sleep, you can choose a mattress the perfect mattress for you.



You’re never going to agree on everything in relationships, but both of you can agree on wanting a comfortable bed. The most comfortable mattresses have multiple foam layers. Each Eight mattress type for example has three or more layers for maximum comfort. They are designed with layers of premium foam, durable foam, or premium foam with pocket spring coils.  All three designs provide the utmost comfort for both sleepers. An added bonus? Mattresses made of foam are better at isolating movement.



Are you and your partner on a budget but still want better sleep? Avoid the age old money arguments by buying an affordable mattress with finance options. Many retailers like Eight offer finance options so you can pay for your smart mattress over time. In fact, you don’t necessarily even need to purchase a smart mattress to reap many of the benefits of one. The Eight sleep tracker is unique in that it can fit over your existing mattress. Who said an old dog can’t learn new tricks?


Sleep tracking

What is a relationship without a little innocent competition? By using a sleep tracker, you can see who got a better sleep score each night. Most sleep trackers can only track one person’s sleep, but Eight’s sleep tracking allows you to track that of your partner’s as well. Eight’s built in piezo sensors track your individual heart and respiratory rates, time slept, and more. With the analyzed data, you can both gain valuable insight on how to improve your sleep.

Your bed should ultimately improve the quality of your sleep and help to make life a little easier. Smart mattresses with IFTTT integration system allow you to connect your smart bed with other smart devices in your home, such as the WeMo coffeemaker. This way, you can prevent those little arguments about whose turn it is to brew coffee. IFTTT can also connect to Amazon’s Alexa. Want to change the temperature of your side of the bed? Simply tell Alexa to raise or lower the temperature.

With all of the above features combined, the Pod is undoubtedly the best mattress for couples. Of course, Eight’s many unique characteristics make it the best mattress for single sleepers as well.

With Eight’s 100 night free trial and free shipping and returns, there’s no reason not to try the best bed for you and your partner.
